Creating a feature wall is a simple way to give a room, in your Melbourne home, a dramatic focal point. Professional painters agree, that a feature wall is just that, a special element in your home and should be used sparingly.
Professional Melbourne painters advise the following few tips if you are thinking of creating a feature wall during your next house painting project.
1. Let the room’s architecture be your guide.
The wall you choose to highlight should be the wall your eye is naturally first drawn to when you enter the room. Walls with existing designs features like fireplaces or mantelpieces tend to work well. The wall behind the headboard in a bedroom is also ideal.
2. Colour & Texture
The colour of your feature wall should complement the rest of the room. Today’s feature walls in Melbourne are not only limited to a shade of colour, but there are a number of choices for colors, finishes and textures. They often not only add interest to an otherwise plain space, but have a functional and beneficial design element.
Strategically placed furniture will work wonders at helping to emphasize your feature wall. However, avoid obscuring the wall with too much furniture. The aim of a feature wall is to guide the eye towards a room’s design features without becoming overwhelming.
Whatever you choose, think outside the box and let your passion show. In this way, your feature wall will not only revitalize your space but also showcase your personality and style.
